The first conference of the 81. Louis 
District, of the National Association for 
the Advancement ot Colored People 
which hot jiiai closed a three days a.-s-

At the opening' session Dr. John. W.

delivered a. masterly address, and on 
Sunday afternoon ftt\ closing' address 
»»< delivered try! Mr. Jan. WsJden

other feature of- tin? mooting was the 
adaption of- n memorial by the Con-

In the President ofthji United. States, 
which ira* us follows: 
Han. Woodrow Wilson, President, 

Washington, I). C. 
Mr. President: 

Tba branches of the 9t. Louis district 
of tit National Association for tho Ad- 
VBiicement of the Cnlorad People, in 
■conference "assembled, extend to you 
sincere, hearty approval of your repre- 
sentation to the Efnp.ire of Great Brit- 
ain through Hop. Arthur J. Balfour, its 
foreign secretary, that home rule be 
granted Ireland as a step totvard'"the 
greatest achievement of demrocracy." 

If Great Britain unselfishly secedes 
to w!i:n von urge, hsr" notion will assure 
greatest achievement of democracy." 
throughout Rurope. Convinced of this, 
and in conseqoenee, eager that your 
splendid counsel be. heeded, we venture 
to petition that you couple with any 
recommendation that yon make to the 
American Congress'in this matter, an 

usance that you will lend the- influ- 
nee and power of your high office fully 
and' directly to (he abolition of the race 
'disfranchisement that impeaches our 
. boasted devotion to liberty and the 
lynch law that insults our jurisprudence 
and the divers proscriptions that: de- 
mean unoffending elements of our.eiti- 

Irish disfranchisement is' a blemish 
on the democracy of Great Britain just 
as the greater evils in the United States 
i dispute and shame our professions of 
n democracy. Sncb crimes against hu- 
manity linger in national practice*, long 
and tenaciously after' proclamations of 
democracy have been made because 
habit, the inexorable "master of man, 
rannot be banished. k by resolution or- 
maaifesto: and theoretical democracy 
only become* real as the lessons of lib- 
-njwrty are absorbed and become the .sec- 
ond natusje of a people. Until' the time 
of inch development. Great Britain, 
the United State* or any other nation' 
'• that ii merely on the way to universal 

-freedom will be open to the charge of 
hypocrisy and deceit. 

- We believe, Great Britain is derelpped 
lo teal far twive**»l nffrage. We, bc- 
lieve t£e-United States is developed to 
where she is willing to honestly actual- 
ize the' great axioms that Were reined 
from American tools by- the crucible 
heat of the Revolutionary and Civil 
War*.- Ws believe these dominant 
states will concrete in unison their pro- 

- f cations of liberty.' either at the sngge*"- 
tion Of the other, if such raggettion is 
coupled with an acknowledgment of 
self derelictions and a pledge of naif 
-pnrgiag; and «■ do not believe, either 
power will bead a vainglorious instrue- 

. 1 1 on from the other. 

So believing, we- beseech that you 
sag. essusel WOMt Brltsis be pnr- 
.i.reotly urged aid that, this Bepob- 
li- he r"' vaoagh to netaoMed*. her 



offenses against human rights and 
pledge correction thereof to the world. 

With such an exhibition of America* 
sincerity, Great-Britain can ill afford 
to falter and few will bo the nations 
Of earth that can withstand tho in- 
liuence.of these sublime cxamples.- 

And your bumble, but earnest,- peti- 
tioners will ever pray. . .

HMO DID' NOT 
ASSAULT CHILD 

Post-Dispatch Report that Fonr-Tear- 
Old Girt Wm, Attacked by Negro 
Was False, Argus Makes Investi- 
gation and Flnda Police Tried, to 
Fasten Grime on Negro. ' Children 
Say ••White Man Did It". 



On Thursday, May 17, there appeared 
in the Post -Dispatch a statement that a 
four year old girl had beon attacked by 
a Negro and left unconscious in a burn 
at 4411 Louisiana Ave. The child 
proved to be little Flora Morgener. -HOO 
Oregon Avo. At th„ same time there 
appeared in (he (!lubo-Dc nine rut , a 
statement thnt uii unidentified man had 
made/the attack. ' 

. Ah. Argus reporter was sent out to 
make an investigation of tho cuan. 
He found that the child bad been roost 
brutally Bsanulted nnd the parents of 
the child stated thnt each of the chil- 
dren said that a white man' made tho 
attack. They also stated that the police 
had used every effort- to fasten tho 
oriuie upon a' -Negro, hilt the "children, 
every time said that it was u. while 

■ Further investigation shows accord- 
ing to the police report,' that a Colored 
riiun had been seen in thc\ vicinity jjf 
the crime by two girls iri ttiq afternoon. 
There seemed to lie no ground for tha 
statement as it appeared in the Pout- 
Dispatch only to fabricate enough to 
make the public believe that only Ne- 
groes commit- such crimes. Of course, 
the" |».lii?c eomo in for their share in 
creating the wrong impression when a 
crime is committed. It seems thnt the 
first thought thnt comes in their minds 
is that some. Negro is the.'guitty party. 
Aii.t n-liili- spending their time looking 
for- VTbe. Negro" the real offender 
mnkes good, his escape.

O JUSTICE! ART THOU BLIND? 

U is with profound regret that we chronicle the death by mob 
violence of two. Negroes; Lawrence Demaey, near Fulton, I£y., and 
EIL, Person, near Memphis, Tenn. One of these victims was 
charged with nanter, while the other was charged with assault 
with a razor. As to whether they were guilty of the crimes for 
whichrthey paid their lives has not . been established. ■ A mob con' 
atituted the judge and jury in the cases! We have always contend- 
ed that a mob is the least capable of passing on a case on its merits. 
If there is a sane person who is willing to trust his own, case in 
the hands of a mob, a reward is hereby offered for his capture. 

In one case, it is stated that Several thousand people gathered 
around their victim and made merry, while the body was saturated 
with oil and to give" the occasion the appearance of a lofty celebra 
tion. the christening' of a ship or launching of a world wide move- 
ment, a woman was called upon to apply the torch. Horror! horrors! 
almost despicable sight was witnessed as the flames engulfed the. 
human form and reduced it/to ashes. 

^. As this news is flashed to all the world, we hear the cry coming 
up. from ■ 10,000,000 Negroes whose . very . souls rtbe/ 
against. this. treatment of the Negro race 
in ' this country. ■ No other clafcs »f human 
beings'are subjected to such. treaUsaent, be they friend orfoe of 
the nation, be they assasins of Presidents or inaulters of the flag. 
No matter what "they are or what their crimes may be, they are ac- 
corded better treatment at the hands of those who call themselves 
.true. Americans, than the Negro who has always been fouad 'loyal 
in war and in peace.- ■ ' ■ . 

Suchcrirries against our. race pkree the soul of its thinking 
members and leave a wound that is not so easily healed. While 
we know that, as a race, we are inclined to forgive, to make ex 
cuses for .the wrongs that are imposed upon us favour white broth- 
er: we also know that "even a worm of the earth will turn when 
trod upon." Yes we say again, we are easy to. forget, weAre anxi- 
ous to forget. We should like for the paat to only appear-*a a mat- 
ter of [history. We should like to feel in a time like this, that the 
boasted democracy of this county is sitting on its perch of reality 
We should tike to sing the song, "My Country Tis-of Xhee Sweet 
Land of Liberty," just as the other, people do. We'ilajld' like to 
feel that the Stars and Stripes mean the same to us as they do'to 
other people. - .""-■- 

Regardless of the insults that are forced upon us; regardless of 
the.fact that we are denied enlistment in the Army,. Navy and Ma.- 
rihe.Corps: yes, regardless of all these things, we are loyal Ameri- 
enn citizens, we are human beings, we feel this very keenly, we 
can be insulted. 



THE NATfONS COUNCIL. 

Aa we watch' the proceedings in .the Nation's Councilat Wash- 
ington,. D. C, we have noticed with a deal of interest the lawav the 
special taws and the strengthening of old laws that are being en- 
acted in Congress, to.meet every emergency, that has arisen on'ac- 
count of the present conflict. The -strong' hand of thete»verhnient 
has been stretched over the land; and is now-seeking tj control the 
power of the press, the labor conditions, the food supply, the free- 
dom of speech, and almost the thoughts of the pegple. The jseveral 
States were unable (to cope with such conditions-," In thenarheof 
right and justice', ■' the strong-hand of the government stepped into- 
the cases as the arbiter, and the people have accepted its decision. 

It strikes as that this is an- appropriate time for a voice to rise 
in the Nation's Council iii the defense of right and justice for.the 
Negro. Questions of human rights are never settled until theyare 
settled right. The cruel treatment of the Negro in America cannot 
be ignored in the Nation's highest council, and/at the same time 
boaatof' the fact that we have entered this great war for the love 
of humanity. 

——Amu ra ce.wa natdav-maain the Nation's Goaae* witfer the 
•piritof Loyejoy ^jJumner or William" Lloyd Garrison. We need 
tome one in the Nation's ' Council who 1 will dare . to 
offer a -. bill to make lynching . a ■ „ Federal offense. 
At • time like this there can be no excuse, forjthe arms of the 
government have been stretched to meet every emergency: Why 
should the rights of ten million loyal citizens be overlooked?

THE WORLD PASSES

. There are a great many reasons why 
I go to the motion picture, show. To 
begin with, I 'can nit at ease in a 
comfortable seat . and -see before my 
eyes the whole-great world past in re- 
view; '* 

I can' see the Turk at his mosque, 
with his arms atretche'd toward Mec- 
ca; tbe explorer battling against tju 
might of Us and. snow, tbe Arab on the 
burning sands- of the Sahara, the mighty ' 
trees of California, tbe black-skinned 
natives of the trnpics gathering- eociin- 
nut* and fruits, the beast*' of every 
jangle aad forest and'plain, the .flsh of 
all the water* of the world, the marvel* 
of natnira, the wonders of savagery ami 
civilisation. , ;.-•,.'.'.' 

I go. to the'&otion picture show be- 
cause, as a common man, I can learn 
more of science than from tbe reading 
of countless books, or by months of 
travel,' or" from courses of lectures de- 
livered by whiskered savants whose 
technicalities confuse rather than in- 
form. A" of thi. can be seen at the

"Enormous and UDnocasaary laciifice of life and treairira hai 
attended all our armed itrugglea," declared Major Oeneral Emery 
Upton, in his Military Policy of the United State*. The wa»te of Ufa 
and treasure, which he ihowi with startling clarity, hu bam, in tbe 
main, the result of dependence upon the volunteer military system. 

capture of Borcovne at Saratoga, and 
the capture of Cornwallli at Yorktowo, 
the latter event made possible only 
by the cooperation or a French army 
and, a French fleet! 

It is i far cry from the dayi of the 
Revolution to thla day, but— Juat at It 
waa done then^emlnent clTtllana in

own imperfect conclusions for the 
judgment of men of military knowl- 
edge and wisdom, and by doing so may

In.tha War of 1812 
The volunteer system failed In the 
War of 1312 even more algn&Dy than 
in previous years. Great Britain had in 
Canada at the declaration of war tiiOO 
effective troops; our atand lot array" 
was 6,744 strong, and widely scatter- 
ed. Congress' had authorised an, army 
of 35.000 six months bafoTe', but the 
measure did not aucceed. We were 
unable therefore to take advantage 
of the enemy's weakness. Adequately 
prepared, we could imve ended the 
war In one .campaign of six months 
against so inill a force. In theory 
and lb Isglslative action we had abun- 
dant. troops, but in reality we had no- 
thing. ' 

The militia W gloriously surrendered 
at Detroit: 4.000 suddenly broke Into a 
panic at the sight of a, prairie Dra In 
the West and rushed home In disor- 
der; and Gen .William . Henry Har- 
rl son's , army of 10,000 was Ineffective 
and rebellious. 

On the Niagara frontier a few regu- 
tan and militia crossed to Queens- 
town, drove the British out, and later 
lost the battle because the rest of the 
militiamen refused to go out of. the

The volunteer system wss a tallute 
In the Revolution because men were 
enlisted for short tenna of service — 
sixty and ninety days, a period mo 
short to suable them to be mouhlud 
Into disciplined soldiers. 

The weakness of short enlistments 
crippled Washington from the very 
moment .he took command at Cum. 
!irl.|(?» -■'!!>> had 17.000 men' beli'te 
him; but as their terms of enUotm-r.: 
did not cover the time required to 
turn recruits Into- disciplined soldiers, 
one of his firm duties was to have 
provision made for another army to 
take the plaie of that which sbnuhl 
soon leave him! ' '■ ' 

From the beginning to the end of 
the struggle almost 400.000 men were 
called out; yet notwith standing- title 
formidable number— on paper— ihe 
most men that Washington could i'-i 
together for any one battle was IT ..'■■'■>, 
while as a rule the fighting strength 
of his command- was so far beiiii* 
that number that an alert and aggres- 
sive -enemy had many opportunities 
to terminate the 'war at one stroke. 

If. for Illustration. Howe had (trues; 
at Boston, the cause wouldjiave been 
Ipst. Washington fully expected the 
enemy to take ^dvWtage of his well 
known weakness and to strike s 
crushing blow. 

Many. Enrolled; Few Ready 

Blind to 'the difference between- m»n 
enrolled and men developed Into i 
dlere, Congress pursued Its wi 
policy; and though In- one year 
summoned 89;600 men. Wafthlngto 
fighting strength before Princeton and 
Trenton was only 4;0O0J 

This failure to have a properly or- 
ganized -army 'was the .result of mill, 
tary legislation by "a body of;cltlzens 
who In their Individual experience 
were totally Ignorant of military of. 
fairs." 

The cost of this mistaken policy 
In money and In discipline was enor- 
mous. Men came and went, consume! 
public stores, created a spirit of In- 
subordination, often Indulged la 
shocking .lawlessness, and presently 
returned to their homes, having done 
little besides taking up the time of offi- 
cers and being- a , charge' upon the 
public treasury. "■ ■ v 
. But deplorable as was the waste tn 
money. It was nothing In. comparlaon 
with the evils it spread. Two of the 
disasters' ere sufficient to show the 
far-reaching effect of the mistaken 

policy. , 

in' the camnalxn of 1TTS. the osvfy 
Important offensive movement under- 
taken by the Colonists waa the In»a- 
slon of Canada. Oeneral Montgomery 
crossed tbe frontier and invested Mon- 
treaL General Arnold marched 
through the wilderness of Maine' to 
Canada, Tviey lolned forces, attacked 
the stronghold Quebec, and the as- 
sault failed. ' Sixty Americans wars 
killed or wounded: Iwtween 300 and 
'400 -were made prisoners; ' Montgom- 
efr.'/loat his Ufa 111 t 

The failure waa due to .the clrcum- 
stanre that the attack wis ma-Is at 
an , Inopportune time > The. .terms of 
enlistment of nearly alf'or Montgom- 
ery's men were about to' eipif". and 
he kaewthat they would Immediately 
leave htm; hence 1 he' determined upon 
S fl n.il stroke ere his force dissolved, 
though. bis military Judgment would 
have dictated otherwise had be been 
master or tbe situation. 

The. second misfortune oecnrred in 

177T when the American commander 

was unable to 'grasp the-great fruits 

of the American victory over ' Bur- 

—goyne at Saratoga! ,

' Why the War Was Prolonged 

Ordlnary military wtadom woeld 
have auggested the Immediate trans- 
fer of this army/flushed with iheM- 
aplratlon of a victory, to Philadelphia. 
where the British army had ealabuaa- 
ed Itself; and had tali been done there 
if every region jo b e li e v e t i nt. H9we~ 

would have been defeated and the revo- 
lution would have ended there instead 
or dragging along. for -five more rear*. 
Tbe transfer waa not' made b»caiua

aaother .'Are years coat at least (300.. 
100.000. exclusive of the loss ii' Usee 
and the Interruption of Industry Yet 
this mistakes policy was destined to

on a larger and more daatractlvs scale. 
Notwithstanding the employment by 
the Colonies of almost 400.00i> man.

tary events that had a direct faring 
en the agpalalon of the British— cae 



In lsll era had 65,000 "soldiers" 
under pay. white the British had but 
1.200 men In upper Canada. The 
American loss In killed, wounded and 
prisoners. In the .various actions of tbe 
year was .about 1.300. almost two vic- 
tims for every one of the enemy In 

upper Canada) 

Ths disgraceful failures at' the be- 
ginning of tbe war 'were added tnand 
culminated In the capture and burn- 
ing of the cnplajl at Washington; - In 
Vsh. after a force of militia, supposed 
from Its nnmbers to be adequate, had 
Bed before the invaders. " . 

All the mistakes of the - Revolution 

hail been repeated, and new. mistakes 

were made li>! the conduct of the 

struggle-In 181$* r 

The System Was Wrong 

Civilian judgment In military mat- 
ters had once more prolonged a ..war, 
lost an opportunity, and lgnorantly 
sent many men to their death. 

Throughout the War of 181) we em- 
ployed from beginning to end 527. S54 
troops to cope with the enemy's force 
of less than 1G.500 men for two and 
one-half yean; ' 

The. United States can never main- 
tain Its place .In the son by relying 
ttpon volunteers. Now it is at war 
With nations who know that the T °l- 
unteer system Is a dangerous and 
fanciful policy. We must meet them 
with a system aa good aa their own. 
Lessons Pram Civil War 

The volunteer system failed- In the 



had had 20.000 regulars at the Drat 
battle of Bull Run the Rebellion would 
have' ended with that battle — tliero 
would have been' no four years of 
Civil War. Instead tbe Federal Got 
ernment 'had ZS.G68 raw troops, men 
enlisted for M days, who Were sent 
into battle because' tbe North desired 
to get some service out of them before 
they were disbanded! 

-Upton makes no crltlctsth tgalnst 
the valor of tbe Individual - volunteer 
bnt against a aystem . which waated 
lives of men whose personal bravery 
and patriotism is unsurpassed. , 

'Tbe bounty which rose to Its great- 
eat height during the Civil War testi- 
fies In another way to the failure of 
the volunteer system. It sprang tn 
a policy that waa organically wrong 
that It failed to Impose.' military duty 
equitably- upon all men of military age. 

The volunteer system compelled the 
patriotic man to sacrifice hls'jlme for 
thehenetlt of others' no more liable to 
service than himself and tt put tbe 
government In the position of pur- 
chasing what- It has aiwdys had the 
right to demand.

How to 

Encourage Bible 
Reading' 



By RBV. HOWARD W. POPE 

Moody Bib] , tasttom, 



TEXT-Pnash tha nraocluu ""' I 
jM thw.-jorum 1:11. 

■ Early In hi* ministry the writer ni 
led to begin preaching on the books of 
the BIN*, 
came about 
thin way: Onr 
Sunday, school for 

-mam. years had 

b«n jiving n con- 
cert each month. 

Constating of the 
usual reading*, 
'recitations and 
»lugl Dg by ' tbe 
school, and clos- 
ing with a abort 
address by the 
pastor. 1 decided 
to substitute for 

the pastor 1 * ad- 

■ dress a brief 

study of tit* books 

Of the Bible, beginning with Genesis. 

I tried to fflve each book a character^ 

| Lsiie name, for instance; Genesis Is the 

I book of beginning, because It de-' 

f ■ scribes the beginning of the universe, 

t the beginning of this world, the be- 

J ginning of man, the beginning of Inn- 

[ guage, the beginning of the Sabbath, 

the beginning of sin and tbe beginning 

of grace. 

Without going into the subject In an 
exhaustive way, I tried to tell the 
story of creation In a popular style and 
at the same time to show bow tbe pic- 
ture accounts compared with the facts 
of modern science. 

The temptation and fall of man 
tapened op the subject of origin of sin, 
aSid the story shows tbe effect of sin, 
. not only upon our first' parents, bjit 
upon .the race as a whole, and there- 
fore It has a practical application to 
. everyone. 

Cancels. 
As the Brat two chapters of Genesis 
deal with generation, the third. chapter 
taies-up the subject of degeneration, 
and the remainder of the Bible, as 
, someone has said, la devoted to the 
subject of regeneration, ■ 

Tbe atory of the Hood opens np' a- 
new theme of exceeding Interest, and" 
Noah's deliverance Is a splendid type 
of solvation. Babel With -ita confu- 
sion: of tongo.es, suggests Pentecost, 
irhera people' oi all tongues understood 
> God's message, and the coming day 
when all God's people shall use the uni- 
versal language. Thus I went on 
touching the points vtblch had the 
greatest practical value. - 

Then briefly reviewing the book I 
celled sttentlon'to the three principal 
characters— Adam, Noah and Abraham. 
From them we can learn three prac- 
tical lessons. From Adam we can 
. learn to obey God ; froin Noah to talk 
to God; from. Abraham to trust God. 
At the close of the service L gave 
to each person In, the audience s rour- 
page. folder. 'containing n brief outline 
of my address, Including the principal 
. facts, dates and outline, together with 
the Sunday school lessons drawn from 
the Btudy of the book. ,41 

t asked the people to-read the book 
of Genesis through, and at our next 
meeting to coiuo -psafiared to puss ati 
. .examination upon the outline I had 
given. At the next service I would 
. spend ten or fifteen minutes In que*-. 
tlonlng the congregation upon the book 
of Genesis, briefly reviewing what wa 
hod. gone over before; Then I took up 
tbe .book of Exodus and gave tn ad- 
dress on that. . » . ' 7 . 

. ' The Results. 

■ At once there was a 'perceptible In- 
crease in the. sise of the congreEatlon. 
uiii! in a short lime the attendance on 
the night of the bonk, study was the. 
largest during the whole month. Peo- 
ple began to reaif their Bible more, 
and to talk about. it more, not only duiv. 
log my HK-iat calls, but In tie mid- 
week .rpfvIit, and young people's 
meeting. . The ysttng folks especltsjly 
were eager to get (he monthly fold- 
er containing the outline Bible study, 
and If obliged to be absent they were 
•ore to spnd by someone else to-securtj 
a copy. These they stitched together 
as the months went on." making them 
Into a little book. ' 

' Fruit 'of Bible' Reading Habit. 
The habit of reading tbe Bible con 
. atantly. however; proved of great 
value. It kept me foil of texts and 
themes and Scriptural Illustrations. I 
bad 'no trouble In finding topics for' 
sermons.' My greatest difficulty was to 
find opportunity to use the wealth of 
materisl which was constantly accu- 
mntattng. Moreover In a few months 
God'gBve.up a season of' spiritual re- 
freshing which Increased tbe cbarch 
membership sboat 50 per cent. 

Moving -to another church later, I. 
began the same method of giving a 
book stu dy once a month, asking tbe 
congregation to.read It in advance. I 
began/this time with the Near' Testa* 
. ment, end found the results ta be prac- 
tically the same as before. ' And sgain 
in a few mouths there followed a re- 
• viral which' "transformed Hie church, 
, and added greatly to Its nsefnlaeae and 
| power, 

TVinbtleaa I have made. as many 
mistake* and blunders as the average 
pastor, bot'as I look back over along 
and happy ministry I can. see that my 
highest enjoyment and what little serv- 
ice 'I base been, able, to render ta the 
cause of Christ, is largely doe tn the 
book stadlea' which I began m my 
early, hslnlstn'. ■"

Blbte Instituted 

CCgUfilghl, ts!7. Wffcra N»wknap*r TT 



LESSON FOR MAY 27 



THE HOLY SPIRIT AND HIS WORK 
— (PENTECOSTAL LESSON), 



Thla lesson follows chapter 15:1-4. 
The emphasis Jeans placed upon the 
new and deeper Intimacy Into which 
the dlscl pies. were about to enter, and 
which. Involved a participation In per- 
secutions (v. 20). However, as a gnr^ 
rison and helper when this persecution 
should come, the believers are to have 
In their live* the Holy Spirit - 

I. Th't Believer and ths spirit <w. 
28-27). The "paraclete" (helper) was 
to proceed from the Father, butjgaiis 
was to send him. Be Is .called tli> 
"Spirit of Truth"; because it "is hla 
work to reveal the truili, and It Is 
through his teachings only that any- 
one may know the truth. Jeaus Is the 
troth (cb. 14:6), and th*e Spirit of 
Troth is to enable believers to testify 
concerning Jesus. It n,uallfles them for 
feu eh testimony. Tbe disciples also 
bad the added qualification of expe- 
rience for "ye have -been wfth me 
from the beginning," The disciples 
were eye witnesses of what he did 
and what he -whs, and heard and knew 
all that he claimed for himself and 
what his life proved itself to be. 

II. The Believer and- Persecution 
(10:1-6).- Th|s section tins not been se- 
lected by the committee, bat as a part 
of the lesson we cannot overlook It. 
Ip it the Master enumerates specifi- 
cally things that were to come to the 
disciples and Ihut Ihey might "remem- 
ber." He also mentions the fuct that 
these things are to come after he has 
gone away. As a relief from sorrow 
(v. 01, tlie Master goes on to show the 
relation of the SplritHo the world. " 

ill. The Holy Spirit In the World 
(vv. 7-11). It was profitable for the 
dlsrlplcs that Jesus should go. that an- 
other Divine friend was to take bis 
place, this Is the best section En all 
the, Bible tn tench ths personality' of 
the Ilnly ■ Spirit. Tbe personal pro- 
nouns in this section are very signifi- 
cant there being seven in the thir- 
teenth verse alone. The word "Com- 
forter" here used means that and. much 
wore. . It Is the same word translated 
"advocate." In I John 2:1, It metfusj 
one who Is railed upon to stnna be-' 
side another as a helper^ counselor 1 , 
guide and friend. Jesus bad been this 
to. his disciples thus far. but- he was 
going away, and another Friend was 
coming, who should hot only be with 
them, but should dwelt in them (Ch. 
14:16, 17). ~ The Comforter has come, 
and wlthont blm'irt' con do nothing. He 
Is the one who convicts the world 
"of atn, of righteousness and at Judg- 
ment." Of aln, not because they have 
broken the inorarcode, but because 
they do Dot' accept Jesus Christ aa the 
Messiah (Hebrews 10:28. See cb 
p-18-20). Ip the second piaee.'he (■ 
to convict the world of righteousness. 
The Holy Spirit has op other channel 
through v/iiii'ii be can get fit the world 
except,, through" those who are already 
saved. He shows th.0 world Its error 
about righteousness ; also that Jf 
the only rlahteons onevi 
n.".'. Is only possible In us In him 
(Phil. 1 3:0 It. V.). -Becriuw he has 
lived tbe right life, having fulfilled' nil 
■vtehtwiBstiess. anil gone on 'high, he 
therefore convicts men. hut the Spirit 
does, his work through the Hgrncj of 
the word. Man Heeds to Itnow first 
of all thnt he is a sinner: second, thnt 
Jesus "the: righteousness, of Rod." hns 
provided for. os, and .It" Is the Holy 
Spirit who- alone con show t,hcse. two 
things to men. tn the third piaee.'he 
convicts 'the world of Judgment -be- 
cause "the prince of this world is 
JUdged." This Judgment Is. past (see 
John 12:31). for Jefitu has conquered 
Satan. Certainly, this IsVtntth that 
needs to be emphasised In this day. 
The Jmlgment of, sin and punishment 
for aln.. due to unbelief nr . rejection of 
Jesus Christ, Is seldom preached in 
our day. * 

IV.— The Spirit - and 'Truth 
12-15). ■ There was tnnch .mure, that 
it;i.' Master might .say to the 'disc! 
pies, but they were not ready to bean 
it (v. 12). He, however, looks for: 
ward to tbe day when tbe Spirit shall 
eome, and they will be ready, t 
Celve tbiHW | thlbjfs, The Spirit 
guide Ihem Into truth, all truth, for he 
■hall not speak of himself (he will not 
bear witness unto or apeak "from" 
himself) but tbe things that he will 
sj-erifc.of « iil be concerning Ji^us. The 
real evidence of tbe presence of the 
Holy Spirit in- a believer or tn,'* con- 
gregation is the degree of exaltation 
given to Jesus Christ- 

There is a progresartve' Inqpiacy Ie 
J*ohn. Jesus first calls those who are 
at hla side, servants (Ch, 13:13). He 
next calls them friends- (Ch. 13:1$) 
and lastly he calls them brethren 
(Ch. 20:17). This Is the law ol 
Christian experience.. 

Sunday- school teachers should cer- 
tainly/take advantage of this lesson 
to brtng oat the work of the Spirit 
(vv.. e, 9. 10) : the '.:- ot the Spirit 
tl Oor. 12) -. and .the fruits, of the 
Spirit (Gal. 3:22. It). - Let aa be Mire 
that our scholars know ithat it means 
to have a definite. Intimate,, personal 
retattoA ni in the all .powerful one.
